I sent Ms. Tao a short email & pic of my trees. This might be a lot of fun :)
thanks for the vote of confidence, Wayne, though have to say am an amateur compared to professor Yao.
the most i qualify for re: jujubes is a *.org, whereas professor is totally backed by *.edu !
she has ~30 varieties in several acres of the state university's agricultural center, while i barely have half in my now overcrowded yard. Last but not least, she transacts with the department of agriculture and agri-centers in china, so surely she's imported several varieties which hopefully she'd be able to mass propagate and perhaps broadcast some rare scions to her collaborators :)
Looks fabulous! Way to go!
I'll get in contact with her just for fun. Rafael, you've been my go - to expert when it comes to Jujubes.
BTW - The trees have some maturing fruit that developed late.
which reminds me, Wayne, not sure if you know Shengrui Yao, she is THE jujube expert of Alcalde, New Mexico fame.
she contacted me earlier this year asking if i could be a collaborator in az area. Sadly, i live in nevada..
i remember you were quite into importing jujube scions and experimenting. Just realized that you and professor Yao could click perfectly as collaborators
I need to get the pics off my wife's phone of the critters that have moved in. We have several young box turtles burrowing in the ground now as well as horned lizards. We also have a few young (1') Mojave rattlers too. That must be the reason why we aren't seeing many Kangaroo rats or fresh holes any more. It's amazing how many animals are drawn to the chipped area. Our Jujubes always have lots of regurgitated bones & fur hanging all over them...yuk...LOL Thanks for the comments!
We planted a Silk Hope Mulberry, Grenada Pomegranate, Honey Locust, & Chickasaw Plum this time. We lost one Nanking Cherry, so we net three new plants.
Very nice Wayne. You've got a nice spot there.
It looks as if I watered. 6 weeks ago it was bare ground.
